Fnu Syedyaseen-Asher: Florida substitute teacher at Boggy Creek Elementary School arrested molested 7 and 8 year old girls cause he found them beautiful and attractive.
A substitute teacher accused of molesting two students at a Florida elementary school has told investigators that he found the girls ‘beautiful and attractive’.
Fnu Syedyaseen-Asher, 19 of Kissimmee was arrested after a seven-year-old student told her mother that the substitute teacher touched her private parts in two different classes at Boggy Creek Elementary School on Thursday, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
In one class, the girl said she was taking a test and had a question, so Asher summoned her to his desk, where she sat in a chair next to him.
The man allegedly told her to stand up and began touching her behind the desk while restraining her hands with his arm, deputies wrote in the affidavit.
In the other class, the eight-year-old victim said Asher began touching her while explaining an assignment as he was sitting at his chair and she was standing next to him, the affidavit says.
The girl told her mother that she made excuses about needing to drink water so she could get out of class and avoid being touched by Asher.
The victim also claimed to have seen Asher inappropriately touch her friend and possibly another student while they were behind his desk.
The girl’s mother contacted police, who interviewed her before questioning Asher.
He initially denied having touched the girl, but later admitted it, saying that he ‘made a mistake’, according to the affidavit cited by ClickOrldando.
The affidavit noted Asher saying he thought the girls were ‘beautiful and attractive’.
Fnu Syedyaseen-Asher: ‘We’re in shock cause he looks very polite well-educated.’
The suspect was booked into Osceola County Jail on three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on victims younger than 12. He has been released on $45,000 bond, according to jail records.
Officials with the Osceola County School District are cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation.
A district spokeswoman said Asher will no longer be allowed to teach at its schools and that parents have been notified of the allegations against him.
Asher had been a substitute teacher since December and had passed a background check, officials say.
He reportedly told police that he had taught at Boggy Creek and Floral Ridge elementary schools eight or nine times in February.
Investigators believe there may be additional victims in this case, causing concern among parents.
